Book Watch: Releasing This Week #126

Below are the YA books releasing this week that I am spotlighting for my “Book Watch: Releasing This Week” post.

These are books for the week of May 28st-June 3rd that I have pre-ordered.

I’m super excited for the release of Anna Banks’ OF TRITON this week. While I haven’t yet read the first book in the series, OF POSEIDON, I will definitely be reading both books this June because I love being able to read books in a series back-to-back.

I pre-ordered OF TRITON just as soon as it was available for the Kindle and actually had traded for an early copy in the hope that I could read it before it released, but wasn’t able to. But there’s no way I will miss the chance to read both books and the prequel novella next month.

Because I want to meet Galen and Emma and can’t wait to discover this story and series told from both characters’ perspectives. At least I think this sequel also has dual POVs….

I did end up accidentally taking a peek at the description for OF TRITON while creating this post and couldn’t help but read it all. So now I’m more excited than ever to learn about Emma’s mother and see what happens when the kingdoms of Poseidon and Triton turn against each other.

If I get caught up with this week’s reads, I can (hopefully) get this series on the pile next week. My fingers are crossed. Tightly.

Goddess

GODDESS by Josephine Angelini will be released in the U.S. on May 28, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by HarperTeen, the print edition is 432 pages.

GODDESS is the third and final book in author Josephine Angelini’s Starcrossed trilogy.

Line_001

I’m both so happy and so so sad that GODDESS is releasing this week. I love this series and I’m devastated that it comes to an end in this book. I have the eBook pre-ordered but plan to buy the print copy as I have both previous books in the series in print. The first one is even signed.

I did read GODDESS just a little bit early and it was amazing, so it won’t be added to my TBR pile even though it is being added to my collection. Though I think the entire series needs a re-read so it will likely end up on the TBRR pile in the next few weeks.

But I have to own this final book because it is one of those books – and series – that I love, love, love. And it’s one I definitely will re-read again and again.

As I already talked about GODDESS in my Book Watch post and my review will go up on Monday or Tuesday, I won’t ramble on much more here. But yes the mythology had me riveted. Yes there is a resolution to the love triangle. Yes this story felt very epic. And yes I wish there were more stories in the series even though things did wrap themselves up… somewhat….

There is this tiny opening that I’m hoping means there will be more stories in this world. Which would be awesome. Even if the MCs aren’t Helen and Lucas and Orion. But I’ll say no more about that.

The one thing I will say is that reading GODDESS has made me desperately want to re-read STARCROSSED. So, hopefully, I’ll get the chance in a couple of week and can follow it up with re-reads of DREAMLESS and GODDESS, too.

The Girl with the Iron Touch

addtogoodreads

THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH by Kady Cross will be released in the U.S. on May 28, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Harlequin TEEN, the print edition is 384 pages.

THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH is the third full-length book in author Kady Cross’ Steampunk Chronicles. There is no information yet available about the fourth book in the series.

Line_001

I am so happy that THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH is not the final book in this series. I didn’t think it was until very recently, but then I read something on Goodreads which said it was. So I read the entire book – yes, I got an early eARC from NetGalley – thinking it was “the end.” Then was totally confused when I got to the end and everything was still so up in the air.

I thought maybe the series was canceled unexpectedly. That is not the case. At least I don’t think so, as Goodreads now says there are five books planned in the series. Which makes me even more thrilled that THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH is releasing this week and my finished eBook will be downloading to my Kindle on Monday Midnight.

Because this installment in the series was absolutely adorable. I loved the current adventure. I loved that there was more Emily and Sam in this one.

The start of this book just pulled me right in and I couldn’t wait to see how it ended. Even though I thought it was a series-ending book at the time.

And I am so glad there will be more, as I want more Jack Dandy. I want more Finley. And as I’m still wary about the new character, I am anxious to see what happens there.

As I’ve already read this third book in the series, it won’t be going on my TBR pile and I won’t ramble on any more. Especially since I will be posting my review in the next couple of days. A review in which I seem to ramble on endlessly.

But I am super stoked that THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH is releasing this week and that I’ll be able to add a finished copy of this book to my Kindle this week.

Dare You To

addtogoodreads

DARE YOU TO by Katie McGarry will be released in the U.S. on May 28, 2013 in hardcover and eBook formats. It is currently available to pre-order online in both formats at AMAZON and BARNES & NOBLE.

Published by Harlequin TEEN, the print edition is 480 pages.

DARE YOU TO is the second full-length book in author Katie McGarry’s Pushing the Limits series. The third book, CRASH INTO YOU, is slated for release on November 26, 2013.

Line_001

I can’t believe release day is just about here for DARE YOU TO by Katie McGarry. I will be reading it on Monday and will hopefully be done around the time the finished eBook downloads to my Kindle.

I’ve heard that both books in this series are amazing and am just about ready to start reading PUSHING THE LIMITS, so I should be able to agree or disagree with that statement in a few hours. But I am just as excited to read this second book in the series about Ryan and Beth as I am to read that first book.

I love contemporary stories that are about real-to-life issues and ones that put the characters in difficult situations. So I’m curious to see how the author approaches each book and how she resolves things for her characters.

And DARE YOU TO sounds like an opposites attract story, which I love, so I am stoked that I won’t have to wait until Monday Midnight to start reading it.

I’m guessing it was a bit quieter of a week for releases due to the holiday in the U.S. Which is kind of nice as the next two weeks have quite a few books I’m looking forward to adding to my collection.

I’m even more thrilled that of the four books I’ve pre-ordered three of them are ones I’ve read – or will have read – by the time of their release. And as I definitely plan on reading OF POSEIDON and OF TRITON in the next couple of weeks, technically none of my pre-orders will be TBR books.

However… I am going to be buying SKY ON FIRE. I own the first book in the series and always planned on pre-ordering this second book. And I would have clicked to pre-order it for my Kindle while creating this post, but it seems there’s something hinky with my account. So it will have to wait until I have time to deal with it on Tuesday.

And I think there’s another book in THE VAMPIRE DIARIES series – The Salvation: Unseen – releasing this week, published by 47North (Amazon). On Goodreads it only shows a UK version so I’m not sure about its connection with the other books in the series penned by different authors. As I haven’t really been following this series since all those TV tie-in books were released, I’m a tad clueless.

Anyway….

Hopefully some of the books releasing this week are ones you are looking forward to adding to your collection. Hopefully a few of them are ones you’ve already had the chance to read. And if there are any books I should have on my radar that I don’t, I’d love to hear about them!

As always, I would love to hear what you’re hoping to add to your collection this week!

And if you have any great suggestions of “must read” books to buy that are releasing this week, please let me know!
